The Pittsburgh Penguins were founded in 1967 during the league’s expansion from six to 12 teams by a group led by Pennsylvania state senator Jack McGregor. The team had moderate success in the early years before difficulty in the 1980s gave way to them drafting Mario Lemieux in 1984, Mark Recchi in 1988, and Jaromir Jagr in 1990. This trio, which would be joined by fellow NHL All-Stars, won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1991 and 1992. Financial struggles in the early 2000s nearly led to the team being relocated before Lemieux converted deferred salary into a majority ownership stake, which eventually led to the team selecting Marc-Andre Fleury, Evgeni Malkin, and Sidney Crosby in consecutive drafts. The result has been three Stanley Cups (2009, 2016, and 2017) and 16 consecutive playoff appearances.

It’s time for THW’s daily look back at all the best memories from this date over the decades. Five-Goal Nights Joe Malone etched himself into hockey lore during the NHL’s inaugural season of 1917-18. On Feb. 2, 1918, he scored five goals to lead the Montreal…

Ducks: 3 Teams That Could Target John Gibson at 2023 Deadline

The 2023 NHL Trade Deadline is one month away, and the rumor mill is starting to heat up immensely because of it. One goaltender who is starting to garner a lot of buzz is Anaheim Ducks star, John Gibson. The 29-year-old has struggled these last few seasons, and this trend has, unfortunately, continued in 2022-23. In 34 appearances on the year, he has a 10-20-4 record, 3.96 goals-against average (GAA), and .898 save percentage (SV%). Although this is certainly not impressive play, the primary reason for his struggles has been Anaheim’s significantly weak defensive group. At this juncture, Gibson could…
